Fedora6 and repositories


Hi I have done

[root@localhost ~]# yum -y update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
livna 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
core 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
updates 100% |=========================| 1.2 kB 00:00
extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
primary.xml.gz 100% |=========================| 1.4 MB 00:07
extras : ################################################## 4441/4441
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

I have installed Mplayer as I can now see it in my menu but I connot understand how to add or remove repositories so it installs the codecs etc. In noob terms can you tell me how to check what repositories I have etc and can I use the add/remove software under the applications.

I managed it under Suse10.2 using the packman repo with excellent results

You can manually create a new file by editing one and placing it in '/etc/yum.repos.d/', however that's usually not necessary.

You have already added a repository, Livna from your yum output. The way that repositories like Livna are added is by installing an rpm that has the necessary configuration. For example:

Code:
rpm -uvh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
The above command will add the FreshRPMs repository. Most repositories will have a "release" file that you can install this way. The instructions for adding a repository are usually on the home page for the repository (along with a pointer to the release file).

Be aware that adding multiple repositories can lead to conflicts, and sometimes non-working software.
